    Default New Exhaust System...

    Hey guys. Just had this system installed on my car. My buddy (who does exhaust for a living) advised me to use this system instead of the cheaper one, so this is the one I bought:

    Motorsport! Aluminized Performance Exhaust System, 82-83 280ZX Non Turbo - The Z Store! Nissan-Datsun 240Z-260Z-280Z-280ZX-300ZX(Z31/Z32)-350Z-370Z Parts

    The install was easy enough, so I was happy with the unit. Cranked it up and loved the "throaty" sound. Only problem I had was as I accelerated (while driving) the exhaust noise was so loud, I could hardly hear the radio or passenger or phone or whatever! I finally could "outrun" the sound around 60 or so...

    Long story short, I had to extend the pipe off the muffler to get the chrome tip farther out (approximately to the outside edge of my bumper) to lessen the noise inside the car.

    I highly recommend this system but you might want to save yourself some time/aggravation and extend it while installing.

    Good luck.

    I learned the same lessons after putting glasspacks on my '64 GTO. I had the tailpipes extended 8" beyond the bumper. They'd snag your pants going for the trunk but it was worth it to be able to hear the radio.
